The game's graphics are nothing startling. A series of icons at the top of the screen tell you which emergency is coming next. The icons at the bottom of the screen have no relevance in the game. Comet game would have been an average budget game. At £7.95, t I think that it is grossly overpriced.

'A daring action packed space adventure with all the risks' says the advert. 'Thrills and death defying challenges' it continues. The only death defying challenge is whether you'll die of terminal boredom or not. The game is really awful, with five boring tasks to complete time and time again to ensure you reach the comet (which has now gone of course). The games are all dull and include a feeble Missile Command attempt, a listening test and a game which involves pressing the fire button twice. The other two aren't as bad but are still really crummy. The graphics aren't much cop and the sound is very dull indeed. Don't do what Giotto did -- steer well clear of The Comet.

Haley's Comet is believed to have thousands of little toxic germs surrounding it and a ship has been sent up there to shoot the little creatures before they explode into the earth's atmosphere. Sounds like the plot to a normal fast and addictive shoot-em-up right? Wrong. You don't get the chance to launch into space and shoot everything in sight, you're not even the pilot. you're just the boring old ship's computer. There are five main problems to negotiate, each one being a little subgame in itself.(...) After all this, I am told that you are put into low-orbit and given the opportunity tho shoot all those nasty little lumps of bacteria. But to be honest, it's not worth the bother of going through this rubbish!
